Can the Rider 550 be used for off-road?
Just got my first TomTom Rider 550 with one purpose only: use it for my off-road trips on a dirt bike. I live in the UAE and as you may imagine, there are no "roads" or even dirt tracks on the desert but just an endless pit of sand, so for this reason the vast open area looks like a simple color on the map. This means, if I want to load a GPX track into it, simply will not load it as there are no dirt track, road, street, etc. Opposite to this, I have an app on my mobile (Cartograph PRO) and simply will load the GPX track (or as many tracks i would like simultaneously) and regardless of roads or not, the track will display on the screen exactly as it was recorded. We use to do "small Rallies" around here where you are supposed to follow a predetermined track and nothing else...
I'm wondering if there is any other way around this on the Rider 550... or if simply just another (don't get me wrong as still a nice product) GPS meant for those riding around inclusive touring but on roads (either paved or dirt) as long displaying on the maps.
Another thing really disappointing is the fact the TomTom app is not available in the UAE (iStore) so can't get the full potential of the iPhone while connected to the TT.
Thanks for any help and hope there is a way around before having to sell/ give away to make room for a Garmin.
